    Exclamation Thinking of Remaping, What Should I look OUT FOR?

    HI,

    I have 54 Plate Vectra CDTI ELITE 150, I am thinking of Remapping it.

    I am not sure who to go to, to do the Remap, as I have been reading to stay away from custom remaps, which is what?

    I found these guys http://www.dcptuning.com/ are they any good or not?

    Can anyone recommend anything & anything else I should get done I.E Air Filter which one? or Exhaust ? I would ideally want 1 exhaust on either side.


    Many thanks for everyone that reads & leaves some feedback.

    You have got the DOUBLE Exhaust thing going ON lol, thats what I want done too lol, what Exhaust pipe you reckon would look nice & make a difference performance wise and what trim do you have under the bumper or is it custom?

    I don't know m8. When they quote over 200PS be a bit sceptical, by all means some CDTI's will get that figure so they aren't lying there but yours may typically get around 190. The CDTI's were updated for Euro 4 in '06, ours are the Euro 3 and typically expect 10PS less than what later models can get.

    Just remap. I am looking at the option to delete the EGR valve from the ECU and blank the EGR valve off on both sides. That way I won't have any issues with the thing anymore. Only realy downside is that it increases Exhaust temperatures and apparently this can have an adverse affect on the Turbo - ie it can fail possibly taking the engine with it worst case scenario. Jope someone will be along to say that is myth.

    I see, I cant seem to find the simple remap, can you possibly send me a link?

    I was thinking of using these guys for the exhaust system http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-VECTR...item4a9f4df833

    I will ask them if the exhaust temp does have an affect on the turbo's and so on, hopefully there advise is Honest.
